Roll Tide Painted on Tennessee Rock in Knoxville
One of the South’s oldest rivalries takes place this week in Tuscaloosa, and even though the stakes haven’t been particularly high over the past 5 years, but the hate in the ‘Third Saturday in October’ never takes a year off.
At some point this week, Alabama fans painted the University of Tennessee’s rock with ‘Roll Tide Roll’ and along with a couple side messages. The photo was shared on Twitter Wednesday morning and many Volunteers were upset about their coveted rock.

If you aren’t familiar with the tradition that is a rock in Knoxville, it was unearthed in the 1960s and serves as an open forum for students. It’s more recently become a place for Tennessee fans to loate Lane Kiffin.
